MIAMI (AP) - Crews used to dealing with hurricanes in Florida have been dispatched to the Northeast to help with the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

Three specialists from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue have joined the FEMA search and rescue managers in Washington. 

Florida Power & Light Co. is sending more than 560 employees and nearly 350 trucks to Maryland, Virginia and Washington to help restore power after Sandy passes through the Mid-Atlantic.

Additional FPL crews may also be dispatched to assist utilities in those areas. 


FPL officials say they are happy to help other states because Florida utilities usually get a helping hand when hurricanes strike.
